Tips for a safe Thanksgiving holiday

On Thanksgiving Day, there are 3 times more kitchen fires than on any other day during the year.  Here are some things you can do this holiday season to keep your home and family safe.
  • Never leave hot food or appliances unattended while cooking.
  • Always be alert when cooking.  Do not cook under the influence of medication or alcohol.
  • Keep anything that can catch on fire at least three feet from the stove, toaster over, or other heat source.
  • Keep the stove top, burners, and over clean.
  • Do not wear loose fitting clothes that can catch fire if they come too close to a burner.
  • For recipes that require frying, grilling, or broiling food, stay in the kitchen.  When baking or simmering foods, check frequently.
Here are some things you can do to keep small children safe during the holiday cooking.
  • Create a three-foot "kid free zone" around the stove.
  • Never hold a child while cooking, drinking, or carrying hot foods or liquids.
  • Hot items should be kept from the edge of counters and tables.
  • Do not use a tablecloth or place-mat if young children are in the home.
  • When children are old enough, teach them to cook safely and always with help from an adult.
Have a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!
